Had the luxury of booking another room for a work function at this Hotel and I was impressed from check in until check out. Amazing service in the hotel and at our event. Love the fact that we can access the Rideau Center from the Hotel. Didn't even have to wear our jackets. It was great, as this mall has...

This was the first time I stayed at this hotel. I was at a Human Rights Conference. From the moment I checked in until the moment I checked out every staff member I met was very friendly and helpful. I felt like I was part of a family when I could not be with my family. I had a very...

The Westin Ottawa is ideal for tourists wanting to visit the city. It's in a prime location near Byward Market and is attached to the Rideau Center, which is Ottawa's best mall. It is also attached to the convention center so if you're attending an event there, then this is the hotel you want to stay at. The hotel is...

Stayed 3 days for a conference, I had to add unexpectedly an additional night and the price was so high but arriving late in the night made it difficult to find alternative accommodations. The staff was great, they ensured that I didn't had to change rooms as I had to get an additional reservation. The conference area and meals provided...

Was here for meetings and business. Nice clean rooms and meeting rooms. I have stayed often and will continue to stay. It is very well located for restaurants and bars. Near parliament and the canal. Always a pleasure.

Our favourite hotel in Ottawa. Nice, clean and very conveniently located 5 minutes from parlement hill. A little pricy but well worth the money. We always try to stay at Westin hotels when we travel and will continue to do so. If you're looking for a great spot in the heart of Ottawa look no further

Overall a very delightful stay. But the bathrooms could use a heat lamp and/or fan, When you use the shower and it is a warm to hot shower......the mirrors steam up and the tile floors get quite slippery. Slipped only once but was enough to bang forearm off of the bathroom vanity/sink.Nice bruise developed. But very nice stay overall

This was a business meeting involving one of the function rooms at the Westin. I also stayed in the hotel for the duration of the meeting (4 days: 3 nights).

The Westin is attached to the Rideau shopping mall and the market is a block away. You are walking distance to many attractions, shopping and many pubs. The staff at the Westin are very attentive and I experienced great customer service. The room was comfortable and utilized the first rate fitness centre.
